    When I purchased the 2020 Prime XLE (with the 6 speaker "premium audio") I really wanted the Limited Trim for the JBL Audio and integrated amplifier, but I couldn't justify the +$4,000 price tag. I have about $800 set aside to upgrade the stereo system. I feel like the deep bass is lacking, highs are not there, and the mids are muffled. I'm by no means an audiophile but overall even with some tweaks in the settings the sound seems flat overall.

    If something involves a basic pop off a cover then unscrew + replace the speaker I can do the work myself. Otherwise, the cost of labor will need to be considered at a stereo shop.

    What would you spend the $800 upgrade on?

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem. My ear doctor said it was because of listening to loud music in my younger years. I got it fixed with a set of hearing aids. Alas, they cost more than $800.:)

    If I am picking up what you're putting down, you're saying it's more cost effective to improve hearing issues by upgrading your stereo than by buying hearing aids.;):p:whistle:
